The National Symphony Orchestra under Principal Pops Conductor Marvin Hamlisch presents their annual holiday pops concert at the Kennedy Center through Sunday, December 12th. Along with traditional holiday music and a visit by Santa Claus, two high school musicians will make their debut with the NSO. Both are part of the NSO's Youth Fellowship program, which gives talented players one-on-one lessons, master classes, and access to NSO concerts, musicians, and soloists. NSO Assistant Principal Cellist Glenn Garlick and Assistant Principal Flutist Aaron Goldman are the two students' teachers. They spoke with Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton about their roles as both teacher and mentor to a new generation of classical musicians.
